The Detrimental Affects of...
Parental Consent Laws
Parental Consent Laws force teens to:
Get their parents permission before abortion
Which increases heath risks and cost
Which pushes back the abortion
First Trimester vs. Second
First Trimester abortions occur in the first 12 weeks. They cost about $480.
Second Trimester abortions occer from the 13th-24th week. They cost about $1,500.
Complications from unsafe abortions in the developing world contribute to 47,000 preventable deaths each year. This is the fault of the Parental Consent Laws
Only 20% of clinics offer 2nd trimester abortions because of health risks.
When parents don't allow abortion access teens are forced into motherhood, are school dropouts and cannot care for themselves or children.
When teens are forced to ask their parents for an abortion they often get kicked out or abused for wanting such a thing.
So come on!
Well, Change it!
